John Njuguna Wanjiku (in orange jumper) taking on a chief in Kiambaa.
Amidst the allegations by politicians and bloggers allied to DP Ruto's United Democratic Alliance that some Government officers are being used to try and unfairly influence Kiambaa people's choices in the ongoing by-election in the Constituency, a dramatic scene unfolded in the afternoon of today after the party's candidate was engaged in a verbal clashing with an unidentified female administrator.
In a video that started circulating on the internet at 3pm and has thereafter gone viral, John Njuguna Wanjiku together with his supporters and friends were seen confronting the administrator whom they called on to vacate the voting premises at Muthurua.
They (Njuguna and his team) could be heard in the video saying that "you are a civil servant and you shouldn't be here. Please just leave, kaa nje!"
The Chief was thereafter escorted out of the polling center by a security officer that had moved in to calm the situation.
In his response, the IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati had said that "chiefs are not among the six groups of people that are supposed to be at polling centers." That "according to regulation 62 of the Elections Act, the chiefs shouldn't be in polling center premises which extends to 400 meters."
